ENDPOLIONOW_4pJoin the Auburn Rotary Club for an evening of fun and games at our annual Casino Night fundraiser! If you are over 21 years old you are invited to attend. Proceeds from the evening will help Rotary continue the world wide effort to completely erradicate polio. We will also donate proceeds to Heart International and to local area student Scholarships. Who says raising money has to be boring and difficult? We say it should be fun and challenging!

ImageGary Noy is a professor at Sierra College. His book, Tales of Dreamers, Schemers, Bigots, and Rogues is a realistic look at the people, events and happenstances that shaped Auburn and the Sierras. The story of John Baptiste Charbonneau was enlightening as well as a sad commentary about his life. However, Mr. Charbonneau didn't miss out on adventure. Mr. Noy's research has yielded many stories about the area. His book is a worthwhile read, and local history buffs will appreciate his stories.

F3 Stu Jann

Stu was introduced by Terry Bryant, and they announced he will be 70 on his next birthday. He decided to take a historical perspective on his life. Stu began his trek to Auburn 75,000 years ago out of North Africa to get to Auburn. In 1840 his ancestors in Canton came to San Jose, and eventually went to Stockton. His family is the oldest Chinese family in the city. One of his ancestors traded land to Captain Weber for his horse. This transaction may have benn inequitable, but it enabled trips to be made to bring vegetables back to Stockton. Stu's mother came from the east coast and settled in Marysville, and Stu was born in Santa Rosa. Chinese were not allowed to own property during this"enlightened" time period so they all lived together. Stu's father was a Rotarian, when he made the move to Auburn, he joined the club. His mentors were Jerry Patton and Don Yamasaki. Stu worked at the Post Office for 30 years where he met Terry. After retirement he was diagnosed with lymphona. He is beyond that now, and he and Terry spend a lot of their time at the garden. Virgil spoke up about Stu's dedication, and the work he does at the garden. After all those years and miles it took for Stu to make it to Auburn, it was worth the wait.

Frank Ordaz, our renowned local painter was invited and introduced by Carolyn Metzker.  Frank presented the history of his career which had several twists and turns.  He began his training in painting at age 10 learning the art of portraiture.  His first job out of college was with Industrial Light and Magic where he created huge matte paintings that were seen in the movies Star Trek and Indiana Jones.  He realized his career at ILM  was coming to an abrupt end when he saw the first digital movie in 1992.  He knew the industry was undergoing a monumental change, so the opportunity was there to do what he really loved, and that was portrait painting. Frank and his family moved to Auburn, and his studio is located downtown on Lincoln Way where his work is on display for all to enjoy.  He was honored a few years back when he was chosen to design all of the art work for the Easter Egg Roll at the White House. The downside of the honor is there is no compensation for the artist.  One interesting glitch was on the day of the event at the White House, Frank was denied admittance, while his wife and three sons were ushered in to roll eggs.  It took an hour for security to correct the mistake and admit him to the event.  Frank enjoyed being at Rotary, and was happy not to be fined for any infractions.  Carolyn displayed paintings that Frank did for her family.  Visit his studio to see Frank's own "light and magic."
